Tom Finney - My Autobiography

£24.99

Product description

Althought the war delayed the start of his league career, Tom Finney burst on the scene when normality resumed and within a few weeks of his league debut he was lining up for England for the first time - and scoring. Nicknamed the Preston Plumber, he was arguably the greatest player England has ever produced and was certainly among the most versatile forwards of all time, equally at home on either wing or as centre forward. His story recalls a golden era for England, playing alongside other legends like Matthews, Mannion, Mortensen, Lawton and Lofthouse. It was also a time of the maximum wage, local heroes travelling on the bus with the fans. Finney looks back at this era and compares it with the modern age of superstar celebrities.

Signed by the author on the title page with dedication "To Michael With best wishes".

Very good condition. Blue cloth boards with silver lettering to spine. Boards clean and undamaged and binding tight. Pages show some tanning but otherwise clean and undamaged. Dust jacket also in very good condition.
